As the chairman for the 300 for 300 Project, I want to ask all of you in the La Crescent-Hokah School District to step up and support the operating levy vote set for Nov. 7. This will be a clear one-vote option to raise an additional $850 per pupil for our school district. This 10-year levee is still below the state average of $879 per pupil for all school districts and will result in an increase in school funding by $1.04 million.
We need teachers, counselors, administrators and we need to provide the type of curriculum and extracurricular opportunities that will not only keep students here but also attract new students to the district. The more students the more funding from the state it is as simple as that.
If La Crescent and Hokah are to grow we must be Lancer Strong for our schools.
